Every new graduate participates in the PIMCO Fundamentals training program, which provides the skills, knowledge and relationships necessary to begin your career on a solid foundation. Informal training continues throughout your years at PIMCO – every day, in a perpetual learning environment.
The training program begins in July of each year with two weeks of classroom training focused on a wide range of topics, including an overview of the firm and its culture, the investment process, an introduction to PIMCO's investment strategies, compliance and risk management, and systems and applications.
Following PIMCO Fundamentals, our Learning & Development team partners with each business area in delivering ongoing training focused on critical jobrelated knowledge and skills.
PIMCO's mentoring program offers support to new graduates in their early PIMCO careers. Each new graduate is assigned a mentor who can serve as a trusted resource and assist with integration into the firm.
PIMCO is committed to a mentoring culture, promoting the development of both formal and informal mentoring relationships throughout one's career.
Additional Resources and Benefits for Career Development

Emerging Enterprise Program (EEP)

The EEP goes beyond helping the poor; it also gives select PIMCO employees the opportunity to use their talents to help entrepreneurs in emerging countries even more directly.
Internal mobility (regional and functional)
There is no single career path for an individual at PIMCO. Given the firm's growth and evolving business needs, opportunities are diverse. PIMCO supports functional and regional mobility based on business need and personal interest.
